Fashion Club Gives Back

For the second year in a row our Fashion Club was able to participate in Bella Boutique's annual fundraiser (http://bellaboutiquedenver.org/). Bella Boutique is a Non-profit organization that provides homecoming and prom dresses to students that can not afford them. Last year they provided dresses and accessories to over 100 girls in the Denver metro and surrounding areas. This fundraiser allows them to purchase new dresses and also pay rent for their volunteer led store front. This year we had 6 teams participate in the fundraiser. Students in Fashion Club worked together to take old ugly dresses and transform them into something new and fresh! These dresses were then judged by a panel of local designers for a special Student design Competition, as well as have their final dresses auctioned off in a silent auction with the proceeds benefiting Bella Boutique. This year Fashion Club raised almost $1000 for the organization! Jisel Atencio won the Student design competition based on quality of construction, transformation of the dress, and appeal to the audience.  Congratulations to these talented students!

District News

DCSD Board of Directors sitting at dais

On Monday, December 4, the Douglas County School District Board of Education voted unanimously (with six voting members) to approve a resolution to rescind the Choice Scholarship Program. The Resolution outlines three steps to this revocation: 1) Rescind the Choice Scholarship Program, 2) Repeal all district policies specifically related to the Choice Scholarship Program and the School Choice Grant Program, 3) Direct the Board President and/or Interim Superintendent to end the litigation challenging the Choice Scholarship Program in a cost-efficient and timely manner. The resolution takes effect immediately.

HRHS Cyber Patriots

Equifax, Target, Yahoo... Unfortunately it is not uncommon to hear about— or fall victim to— data security breaches as computers become increasingly integrated into our lives. However, a generation of high school students are preparing to fill cybersecurity roles to help protect all of us against future attacks; and many of these future protectors are right here in Douglas County. Meet the Highlands Ranch High School CyberPatriots.

It may look like a plain, white shipping container was just parked on the backyard grounds of Mountain Vista High School. The contents of the container are anything but plain, though. Walking inside the container, different colors of ambient lighting glow, futuristic-looking equipment and tall towers are suspended from the ceiling, and the humidity level is set to 70 percent. The container has been recycled into a new kind of learning opportunity for students.
